Low Battery on eee pc under XP Pro?

If you are seeing a battery level that is lower than you would expect try a reboot. I was at 30% for 2 hours Friday. It just got stuck I guess.

Today I woke my laptop up and had only 20% after a charge last night. A reboot brought the gas tank to show 90% which makes more sense.

XP has always liked a reboot ever so often, especially on laptops and desktops that hibernate or sleep.

The jury is still out on the Atheros wireless client. I found myself jumping back and forth from it to the Windows Zero utility. Atheros seems to get confused with my Wireless N router.
